We been gone, but now we’s back …

El and I have been just swamped the last few weeks, and we have been remiss in not posting.   Since I don’t have much to say at the moment, how about Bourbon!

I recently tried the Early Times 354 Bourbon.  One review at www.bourbonbuzz.com said the following:

Tasting Notes for Early Times 354 Bourbon

Color – deep amber

Aroma – spicy with sweet fruit, fresh oak and delicate corn notes underscored by a layer of vanilla and caramel.

Taste – a lively entry with spice, caramel and vanilla that melt into a mixture of fresh and dried fruit notes.

Finish – warm with subtle hints of apple and corn

My thoughts:  It’s OK.  Not a bad bourbon; just not my favorite.  But really – “spicy with sweet fruit, fresh oak and delicate corn notes underscored by a layer of vanilla and caramel”?  Delicate corn notes?  WTF?  Bourbon is a man’s drink.  It shouldn’t be the subject of metrosexual comments more appropriate for a pretentious wine-tasting.  And please – “a lively entry with spice, caramel and vanilla that melt into a mixture of fresh and dried fruit notes.”  With all the “lively entry” and “melt into” going on, you’d think this is a review of a soft-porn VHS tape.

My assessment?  Eh, 2 and 1/2 stars, with 1/2 star being for the cool retro label on the bottle.

Can I play through?

Victor Davis Hanson calls the O the “Y” word:

Obama: Fighting the Yuppie Factor

Money quote:

But those planets will not line up again in our lifetime. And so a country that is deep in a stalled economy and tired of elite bromides is left with our first metrosexual president, Barack Obama. Both the man and the agenda, after nearly two years, are yuppie still to the core.
